radial cowling overload

Post  roddie on Sat Nov 14, 2015 1:07 pm

My workshop has two cat-litter boxes.. so I keep stocked on air-freshener cartridges. I've been saving the caps as you can see. These caps have a dimple in the center which is great for starting the pilot-drill on a hole-saw.



I had wondered if the nozzles would interchange with spray-paint nozzles.. but they don't. (at least not with the cans I have) A standard spray-paint can cap wouldn't fit over it. Maybe a valve-stem could be fashioned from a short piece of tubing?




It would be cool if they produced a decent spray-pattern.. because it would avoid getting paint on your index-finger while spraying.

I can use this one if I ever want to build a 1/2A sabre Jet.

Comes from a personal deodorant can.

I guess I shouldn't say too much about cats following our last cat discussion, but if they smell that much, I'd be moving the litter tray well away from humans.  You'll never need that many cowls that you show in your picture, so don't use that as a justification. lol!

That is a cool shape Rod. Here's some inspiration..



About the cats.. It's my wife's fault.  Laughing She doles-out the treats between meals.. and the three darling young poop-generators are indoors 90% of the time (which will soon be 100% of the time) We use two lg. litter-pans with the corn-fiber (scoopable) litter. My wife wants it scooped daily.. I didn't say my wife "scoops" it daily.. I do all the household shopping.. including the Friskies canned entre's, Kitten Kaboodle (16# bag) and those awesome treats that are crunchy on the outside.. and soft on the inside. These three cats are a sister and two brothers that we took in feral at two months old almost three years ago. They had been captured/spade/neutered by an organization in Southern Rhode Island to help prevent over-population.

Then..


Now.. Charlie and Linus are identical twins and besties.. They're  Cool  cats!


Lucy is daddy's kitten. She had actually been split from her brothers before we got them.. and went to a family that wanted just "one" cat. My wife saw the ad listed as "two cats".. then "three cats" with the same contact info. It was explained to us by the woman who brought them. Lucy was going to be tough.. I was unemployed at the time.. and worked with her daily. She hid and hissed... I soon gained her trust though.. because I'm awesome.  Laughing She is VERY vocal.. and likes an occasional shot of whipped-cream.

Lucy last year..



Linus.. would be a beer drinker if he was a human. He likes to eat and watch the N.E. Pats football games. He's the biggest.. and often resumes a reclining-position.. probably after he's eaten everyone's leftovers.




We love them!

Speaking of cowls... I like cats, at least the kind we have. Just one, Tribble, is what is commonly called a Barn cat. She's an indoor-outdoor, whichever she wants. 18 years old, and when they get old, they finally figure out enough of what you're doing and talking about, to have some dog-like intelligence. It does take them a while to get there though. In this past year, we've started putting a Litter box inside. She prefers to go outside, but uses the box rather than waking us up.
